How to Keep Your Home Clean in 6 Easy Steps

We know that cleaning your home can seem daunting and it is probably low on your list of priorities, but we are here to help you rethink how to keep a clean and organized home. We put together a list of home cleaning tips, so you can knock out clutter daily, before the mess gets out of hand and you end up spending your entire weekend doing a deep clean.

Make your bed.

Many scientists and health coaches believe that making your bed each morning leads to a more productive day. We aren’t scientists, but we do know that after we make our beds in the morning, we always feel more accomplished. Give it a try tomorrow morning!

Clean the dishes.

Cleaning the dishes after you eat takes about five to ten minutes on average and it is always way better than the alternative; putting your dishes off until you must clean a whole weeks’ worth of smelly dishes covered in bacteria (gross)!

Sort the mail.

Mail can stack up quickly, so it is best to deal with it right away. Whether it’s a bill, package or a wedding invite, make sure you take care of it immediately to avoid creating a mountain of mail!

Have an entryway bench/coat rack.

Many odds and ends come through the door at any given point of the day. Instead of letting all those items pass through the entryway, make a space to hang coats, hats, umbrellas, keys and pocket change to keep track of each of your everyday items.

Clean as you go.

Mom always said to put things away as soon as you are done with them and unfortunately, she wasn’t wrong. This will not only reduce clutter, but help you find things right when you need them.

Vacuum once a week.

Vacuuming might not be the most fun activity, but if you schedule 30-minutes each week to clean your floors it will help you avoid having to do a deep-cleaning-dive at the end of each month. In the long-run you are saving time and stopping cleaning from encroaching on your weekend fun!

A clean home is a happy home!
